Description of the flag

The official flag for the City and County of Denver was adopted in 1926; it was designed by Margaret Overbeck, a North High School student at the time. A yellow circle in the center symbolizes gold in Colorado's hills as well as the sun. The circle's position indicates Denver's central location within the state. The blue field represents our community's matchless skies; the white jagged line is representative both of the mountains which form Denver's background, and is also symbolic of the state's Native American heritage. The red foreground beneath the mountains stands for the red earth from which Colorado gained its name.
